unhealthy about your interaction with the murdoch's. and do you think that they are fit and proper people to run bskyb. >> it is not my decision about which are open and which are closed. i think the problem here is that it is not the paper. it is the practices. what needs to change is not the name of the newspaper, what needs to change as the practices the golan and make sure that they are illegal and properly accounted for and properly managed. it is not fair for me to say what remain open and remained closed, but i set up the processes and inquiries to make sure that we don't have these things never happen again. you are bound to, as a party leader, wanting to have a relationship with journalists and you do that because if you have a mission to try to explain how you want to change and improve our country. that means talking to the head of the guardian, you get out there and do it. that is what i have done for the last five years. the problem we are correctly identifying is because leading politicians feel so passionately about wanting to get that message across, not just with the murd
